Perhaps it’s a fusion of African sensibilities with the rose from which Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa
derives its intriguing charm.
Or is it the bygone romance underscored by percale linen in a tented lodge suite? If not that then the fact that you may take a treatment in a spa pavilion set beside the river in which hippo`s bath at dusk?
Along with a gourmet kitchen, all of this defines Summerfields Rose Retreat as a most enchanting place to re-ignite your senses.
Nestled on 100ha in a secluded valley near Hazyview in Mpumalanga province 10km from the world famous Kruger National Park, Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa comprises a lodge, spa and restaurant, set on Summerfields Rose Farm, famous for its export quality hybrid tea roses and macadamia nuts (sold at the farm and at Caster Bridge Centre in White River).
In the vicinity are all the adventurous ideas one might want to consider – from game drives to tree canopy aerial walkways though you will be excused for simply wanting to spend all your time at Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa, the essential place to stop and smell the roses.
Treatment prices include coffee, tea and water. All alcoholic beverages, juice, cappuccino and bottled water will be charged for.
Guests are pampered to aromatherapy, reflexology, hand, foot and scalp massages, facial treatments, full body exfoliation and wraps as well as manicures and pedicures.
Accommodation at Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa:
The River Lodge comprises 12 luxury tented suites, surrounded by the music of nature – the sounds of cascading water, amplified by a choir of bird calls and the occasional snort of a hippo.

Listen to the fish eagles calling as you unwind in secluded and spacious African thatched Rondavels. Soak up the warmth of the sun around the pool or pamper yourself in the sauna and Jacuzzi.
